Bible: Isaiah 44:26-28

44:26 who fulfills the oracles of his prophetic servants 1 

and brings to pass the announcements 2  of his messengers,

who says about Jerusalem, 3 She will be inhabited,’

and about the towns of Judah, ‘They will be rebuilt,

her ruins I will raise up,’

44:27 who says to the deep sea, ‘Be dry!

I will dry up your sea currents,’

44:28 who commissions 4  Cyrus, the one I appointed as shepherd 5 

to carry out all my wishes 6 

and to decree concerning Jerusalem, ‘She will be rebuilt,’

and concerning the temple, ‘It will be reconstructed.’ 7
